Our latest hope of seeing an untethered jailbreak for iPhone 5 or iOS 6 is here. Hacker named Dream Jailbreak today posted a video on YouTube of him jailbreaking an iPhone 5 using a jailbreak method he developed. The hacker claims that his jailbreak will jailbreak iOS 6 and iOS 6.0.1 on iPhone 5, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad (2, 3, 4, mini), and iPod touch 4 and newer. Below is the Dream Jailbreak in action…
Although many prominent members of the iPhone Dev Team have accused the guy behind the Dream Jailbreak as fake and scammer, we don’t know if those hackers are butt hurt because someone will release a jailbreak before them or the guy is truly fake. According to famous iOS hacker iH8sn0w, everything shown in the video is fake. He pointed out that Dream JB waited until the iPhone 5 outolocked and then overlayed a pre-recorded video.
@dreamjailbreak … and you waited for the device to auto-lock then overlayed a pre-recorded video. 🙂

Dream JB said he will release the untethered jailbreak tonight on his website dreamjb.com. So we will have to wait to see if it’s true.
Update: it appears that the guy is just a typical douchebag.
